Presenter: Shannon

Invention of Wings by Sue Monk KiddIn the hands of a master storyteller, the life of an early-nineteenth century abolitionist, suffragette, and independent spirit comes to life. It is inspired by the true story of Sarah Grimke, who was given a slave girl for her eleventh birthday. Told in the first person, the chapters alternate between the two girls? perspectives, following their lives from childhood to middle age. What does it mean to be a sister, a friend, a woman, an outcast, a slave? A fascinating story of their struggles, set amidst a difficult time in American history. Join us for a lively discussion at the Avenue Flower Shop and Wine Bar, 10632 S. Cicero. No registration required and all are welcome!

Presenter: Kevin

What Stands in a Storm by Kim CrossApril 27, 2011 was the climax of a three-day superstorm that unleashed terror from Arkansas to New York. Entire communities were flattened, whole neighborhoods erased. Tornadoes left scars across the land so wide they could be seen from space. But from terrible destruction emerged everyday heroes?neighbors and strangers who rescued each other from hell on earth.Continuing our year-long theme on the 50th anniversary of the Oak Lawn tornado, we have chosen this riveting book that further investigates the power of nature and the power of humanity. Please join us in the Local History Room at 7:00 P.M. to talk about it. Everyone is welcome!No registration required.
